The Oregon Applied Sustainability Experience (OASE) offers paid internships for its 10-week program this summer. Internships are open to juniors or seniors with advanced undergraduate or graduate-level training in business, economics, engineering, environmental science, green chemistry, physical science or sustainability science.

Projects address pollution prevention solutions for Portland-area businesses and pair students with an industry mentor to gain hands-on experience in project development and management.

What is Pollution Prevention?¬† Pollution prevention (P2) is any practice that reduces, eliminates, or prevents pollution at its source, also known as “source reduction.” ¬†Implementing P2 best practices can improve efficiency, prevent wasted resources and save money.

Successful candidates received a $5000 stipend for a full-time, 10-week internship. Interns must be available to work onsite at the businesses on a daily basis. Housing costs are not provided, but limited funds may be available to support program-related expenses.

For full consideration, applications must be submitted by April 9. Application requirements and the available positions are listed on the Oregon Sea Grant website.
